Work Programme G4S Post Tender Discussion questions

I would like to clarify minor aspects of my offer to deliver The Work Programme in CPA 7, 10 and 18 submitted in tender document of Monday 14th February. I agree should my clarification be accepted by DWP, I will be bound by all details contained in the original proposal pack and to the additional points below:

Q4.1a: Customer Journey Rationale All CPAs G4S propose to provide Jobcentre Plus Advisers with software. What is the purpose of this software as referrals are via LMS and PRaP? Where a face-to-face meeting is not possible, JCP video-conference or telephone the appropriate Job Broker to conduct the referral. G4S provides all JCP staff with relevant software, training and a clear written guide as to which Job Brokers to refer to. G4S is committed to ensuring that a warm handover takes place wherever possible at all transfer points of the Customer Journey. This includes transfers from Job Broker to Knowledge Bank provider, Job Broker to Employer and critically, from Jobcentre Plus to Job Broker. G4S also recognises that this approach may not be practicable in every circumstance. G4S believes that alternative formats, including video-conferencing, can be used to facilitate handovers where a face-to-face meeting is not possible. G4S therefore commits to providing Jobcentre Plus Advisors with the relevant software and training to conduct handovers through videoconferencing technology. The software is not intended to replace the LMS and PRaP systems used for referrals. Q5.2: Management Structure All CPAs For each CPA please provide details of which key delivery partners G4S will work with outside of the supply chain In addition to our supply chains, G4S is committed to working alongside all key local, regional and national delivery partners to ensure the success of the Work Programme.
